  2. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A decent example of a lightly sherried Bunna, which is slightly hampered by the high alcohol percentage. Even with a tea spoon or two of water, it was difficult to tame the alcoholic kick. A shame, since the fruits behind that were really beautiful.

      Raw barley and a slight sweetness, those are the first two main components. Then oranges, cacao beans, something vegetal, a hint of ash and mud. Pretty spirit-y. I also get more and more fresh nectarines, some salt and chestnut compote. With a tea spoon of water, more fudge and burned wood. After some breathing more cakes, golden raisins and peaches. It is getting really nice over time. A tiny bit of orange chocolate.

      Powerful with again barley, ashes and autumn leaves. The alcohol gets a bit in the away at start. A hint of orange scrapings, lemon zest and sand. The a slightly yeasty and muddy taste with fruit skins, putty and diluted fresh cow milk. Water brings out more wood influence, oranges and brown sugar. It now becomes really fruity and much more salty. Wonderful, the magic of a few drops of water! Also here golden raisins, cake and peaches come up. Accompanied by more yellow fruits, breads, something yeasty. The aftertaste is considerable with leather, bread crust, golden raisins, coal and samphire. Still going pretty strong on the alcohol.

    Tasted during the proefolympics blindtasting competition.

    A really delicious candy and surprising flavors, I thought a Highland or Speyside whisky. In the end a Bunna, already realized that it would probably be a Signatory bottle. ;)

      Sweet, sherry and a layer of butter, icing, candies, syrup, glazed banana, fruit more like canned fruit and strawberries even topped with whipped cream, hazelnuts, cake, marzipan.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Candy, sweet, sherry, red fruit like that strawberry, chocolate and that nut flavor, licorice, 'trekdrop', something salty also cinnamon.
    • Finish
      90 90
      More red fruit, buttery, mango, fabric, wood a little dry and that buttery. The alcohol and red syrup lingers.

    • Nose
      At first rather clean. Apple and lime. Then dough, crackers perhaps. Then it floats between whiffs of Wehrter's caramel or caramel tea, cherry, spice and sometimes cheese on toast.
    • Taste
      Caramel, apple, pepper, hazelnut and smoke.
    • Finish
      Caramel, apple, praliné and smoke.
